Abstract: We prove a functional central limit theorem for modulus trimmed i.i.d. variables in the domain of attraction of a nonnormal stable law. In contrast to the corresponding result under ordinary trimming, our CLT contains a random centering factor which is inevitable in the nonsymmetric case. The proof is based on the weak convergence of a two-parameter process where one of the parameters is time and the second one is the fraction of truncation.
